How to chose between hydraulics and electromechanics
Features 10/19/1998 Post a comment When selecting power mediums, engineers face a multitude of choices. Often, however, the first step is to choose between two broad categories of technology--hydraulics and electomechanics. Here, engineers from the same parent company describe the application niches for each technology, and offer rules of thumb for the gray areas in between.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
